Chicken Tortilla Soup V
I haven't been grocery shopping in almost a month, so this was something I could put together rather quickly with what I had in the pantry (which wasn't much).
I needed to use the other half of a chicken I had boiled the night before, so I put it in a pot of water to boil (just to make some stock), and I used the stock to start off with. While I let the chicken cool (so I could pull it apart), I sauted green onions, garlic and cilantro in some olive oil and butter, and then stirred that into the stock. I added 2 cans of corn, 1 can of drained and rinsed kidney beans (I was out of black beans), 1 can of enchilada sauce, 1 can of rotel, 1 can of diced tomatoes, some chili powder, salt and pepper, poultry seasoning, 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese and instead of using tortilla chips, I used real tortillas (I was trying to use them before they went bad). I didn't have any avacado or sour cream, so I just topped with chopped green onions.
It made enough for everyone to eat two bowls last night, everyone to take for lunch and guess what we're having for dinner tonight? :) It was really good, and everyone really enjoyed it! (I can only imagine how good it would have been had I had all of the things I was supposed to put in it)!
